I remember him coming in to my local pub in East Tyrone and buying everyone a drink. There were only 5 in it at the time in but the barman cashed the cheque anyway and didn't put it on the wall. Jack wasn't happy.

And Socrates played for UCD.

Did you know Germany's away kit is green because of Ireland?

There is actually a thread in Irish sporting myths.

That Hill 16 was constructed from the rubble of the Easter Rising is a myth, but what is true is that the second incarnation of Hill 16 was partly constructed from the rubble of the Nelson pillar. Also Pillar Caffrey got his nickname because used to work at the pillar as a toddler.

Just watched the documentary last night. Sad to see Jack decline like he did. He and the team gave us some brilliant memories.

What was Brendan O’Carroll doing on it though? I noticed he didn’t talk about him getting his ponytail cut off at the World Cup.

Brendan OCarroll was a weird one alright but not as weird as Chris DeBurgh  :o

I think so yeah.

He had a couple of sing songs with the players in the hotel after games.
